Pawnee Nation Title VI Elder Meals Program received a short-term grant from First Nations Development Institute to conduct a Local Food Assessment for our community food access purposes. We hope to gain an understanding of Pawnee Nation’s current food sovereignty with a focus on Native and non-Native fresh food production and accessibility of these foods for tribal members. Once this data is collected, it will be used to educate tribal members on healthy eating lifestyles, Native food teachings, and how to produce their own fresh foods for long-term local and sustainable food access to feed generations to come.
Please take the Survey Monkey! Please click here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/XPK7Z9T. All surveys need to be done by September 22, 2017. Thank you for your input!
